Hail, Caesar! (2016)

The Coen Brothers direct George Clooney, John Brolin and Scarlett Johansson in 1950s Hollywood set shaggy dog story.

Since The Man Who Wasn’t There the Coens have become a little less prolific and at times churned out placeholder works that tarnish their near perfect records. Hail Caesar joins Intolerable Cruelty, The Ladykillers and Burn After Reading as output that, a few good skits and a wasted stellar cast aside, really might have been better being put into turnaround. Pointless, dull and legacy damaging. It looks fine, however.
